My first Kerley - boy was I surprised. Very interesting and engaging mystery. Characters you can love or hate, and some who are surprising. A good read.

I enjoyed this one more than _The Hundredth Man_ and almost as much as I enjoyed _The Death Collectors_. It was a different sort of story than the previous two, more surprising in a lot of ways, really... My only complaint is that the side story of love interests involved a different woman for each book! Still, this book had a riveting conclusion and a was all in all, fun and thrilling.

I began reading these books of the Ryder and Nautilus detective team because they are set in my hometown. I enjoyed the first two, but this was by far the best of this series so far. A very well woven and intense mystery that was difficult to put down. What I most enjoy about these, though, are the personalities and quick wit of the main characters-at times, laugh out loud humor:) All three books stand on their own, but references are made to events in the earlier books. Very entertaining and worthwhile read.
